Tank Swap

I have a 40 gal tank up and running with excellent water parameters. This week my wife said let's get a bigger salt tank(of course i'm not one to disagree) So I got a 65 gallon tank. I will be swapping everything(water and live rock) except the substrate to the new tank.
Can I expect an ammonia spike and do you think it will be a large spike are rather small. I have very little livestock..1 clown 3 damsels and snails and hermit crabs.


New at this, but learning everyday.
65 gal saltwater
1 clown ; 1 orange spot goby ; Firefish ; Lawnmower Blenny ; Royal Gramma ; Yellow Watchman Goby ; 2 Electric Blue Hermit Crabs ; 6 Scarlet Leg Crabs ;
60lbs live rock
2 peppermint shrimp
40 gal FW Community Tank
2 neon tetras ; 1 zebra ; 2 catfish
Red Turq Discus

If you are simply swapping from one tank to another there shouldn't be any spikes of any kind.
